Loved, loved, loved:

camping with unicornsCamping with Unicorns: Another Phoebe and Her Unicorn Adventure by Dana Simpson (Andrews McMeel Publishing, April 7)

It’s been a hot minute since I talked about my love for the Phoebe and Her Unicorn series, so I thought I would remind you that it exists and is excellent! I cannot believe that its already time for the eleventh book, but here we are. Phoebe and her vain unicorn BFF, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, are a delightful pair, and the illustrations are adorable.

In this edition, school is out and the two besties spend the summer camping and wandering outside, where they meet Alabaster, another unicorn. The humor and cute factor are so high in these books that kids won’t even realize they’re also learning important lessons about things like popularity, friendship, and being true to yourself. 11/10, would read over and over.

Pun of the week: 

Did you hear about those new reversible jackets? I’m excited to see how they turn out.

Here’s a cat picture: 

King Derp of Derpland. (Also, it’s making me giggle how it kind of matches the book cover above the pun.)

And this is funny.

It’s an understandable mistake.

Trivia answer: Two dollars.

You made it to the bottom! Thanks for reading! – xo, L
